I ordered my car here in California on August 31, 2014. For us USA owners who can track the progress on the MINI's websites Owner Lounge it's status went to "scheduled for production" on September 10, 2014.
Do you know how long it stays in this stage? I know the factory is closing September 22nd to October 5th, so don't know if my car will be held up or will get built before then.
Does the production take days, weeks? What has your experience been?
I ordered my F56 on June 12th, Produced July 22nd (prod. Line change over from 2014 to 2015 on July 15th) Oxford England, Del to Halifax compound on Aug. 6th......waiting for release of vehicle pending EPA Certification.
